Hey Jac,

thanks a lot for your comment !!
It was a big pleasure for us, to play in your hometown La Ciotat last year.
And we are proud to be a part of the "Rock-The-Garden" festival this year in Thuringia, Germany.
We invite all friends of handmade rock music, to come to Poessneck in August!
Thuringia is a beautiful country and the location "Lutschgenpark" is simply perfect for a open air festival!
Cheers from Germany
